Mattawang Golf Club has changed very little since it first opened in 1960. The traditional layout has withstood the test of time as a challenging but playable layout. The course was designed to blend seamlessly into the natural setting while still testing your shot-making skills. You won’t find any man-made water hazards or artificial mounding on this golf course, instead you’ll be challenged by natural streams and ponds and mature evergreens. At first glance, the layout is seemingly wide open, but don’t let your guard down because the fairways are actually quite tight and many of them are strategically lined with trees. In keeping with the time it was built, the greens are smaller than those you would find on most modern golf courses and heavily protected by sand traps. Over the years, Mattawang Golf Club has built a reputation for having some of the well maintained putting surfaces in the area.

Course is in great shape for this early season . Weekdays are great but can be crowded on weekends. Best kept secret in this side of New Jersey. Been playing here for the last two (2) years , you get rewarded for your good shots, and can also recover good from some errant shots as well.

My buddies loves this track that we make sure we play here at least once a week. If you love golf come play and you will have a nice relaxing round. That is what golf should be.....

To keep it short and simple. For some reason the usual lady behind the desk was not there when we went. She is just an awesome womam with a Great personality and I csnt say enough good things about her! Instead we got this guy who must be new because I have never seen him there before and hope I never do. When I told him thst me and three other guys booked our tee time at Golf Now he treated us like second class citizens and made us wait to exactly 11:45 to tee off when there was No one in front us to wait for! For this reason I dont know if I will ever go back to the Wang!

We appreciate your comments and your compliments of the usual staff.

I feel the need to express a growing problem with our Hot Deal Customers which it appears you were on 4/9. The hot deal customers have been welcome here for the last 6 years with open arms. However, for the last few months these customers have been coming an hour before their tee times and expecting to get right out, or go out alone, or not ride in the same cart with other hot deal customers etc. The issues continue to expand and the staff is trying to make sure the Hot Deal Customers are playing by the same rules as our regular customers.

I am sorry there was no one ready to play in front of you on this given day and sometimes we can let golfers out early but most days we can not.

You clearly have played Mattawang often and we appreciate your business. I am sorry your expectations were not met on this given day.

Have been playing Mattawang for a number of years now and my playing partners and I return there almost weekly. They do a superb job with the upkeep of the course - with special attention on the greens as they are always cut and rolled to perfection. The staff is fabulous especially Joyce at the front desk and Mahlon Dow the PGA Professional. Pace of play is well kept with their professional and courteous starters Cornell and Bill. Look forward to my next round at Mattawang soon.

To be playing in December in the NE is a great thing right from the get go. Upon arrival you are greeted by a very friendly staff. The Pro shop isn't great but there is a very nice putting area where you can chip as well. We were a foursome and went out on time. Weather was 49 degrees partly sunny and no wind. Course was fully blown clean for leaves and did not lose 1 ball because of leaves. The fairways, sand traps and greens were beautiful. Pace was great and course layout very nice. I will definitely come back to play here again.

First time playing Walked Cold weather

Reviewed on

I played here for the first time on a Saturday morning. Walked the course (course is easy to walk), paired with 3 other guys. The pace was great and we finished in a little less than 4 hours.

The greens are small, quick, and are challenging yet fair. The layout, while nothing out of this world, has a good variety of hole yardages and difficulties, including several 400+ yard par 4 holes that I struggled with but still enjoyed. Hard to lose a ball on this course unless you yank one into the woods on one of the holes along the outer perimeter of the property. The sand in the few bunkers my ball found was of good consistency. One point I must make is that compared to a lot of other public courses I've played within the last month in NJ and PA, the conditions at Mattawang from tee to green are probably the best around, and it seems like the staff has done a phenominal job at removing leaves from the course.

I don't know how crazy busy it gets during the warmer months but I'd definitely come back.

Although Mattawang is not my favorite golf course, for this time of the year it was in great shape. Greens were true and quick, fairways clear of leaves and other fall brush, and rough for the first time this year at any course was not too deep.

Tried out this course for the first time. I've lived in the area most of my life and I never knew this course existed. What a great course, very walk-able. Greens were great, Course in excellent shape. It was windy, but was told by a local there is always always a little wind. Was very busy on the course, pace of play could have been better. Will play again, and probably often.
